New trees!

I came home from work yesterday and there were 5 new trees in my backyard! Birches- still with green leaves so now I get to watch them change color! I'm so excited.
They will, in time, effectively block the view of my neighbor's ugly shed. (You can't tell from here, but it is painted three different colors- and not in an artistic sort of way.)
Kiddo likes the trees.
Dog likes the trees- even in the early morning mist.

How did this happen? Well, I actually ordered them a few weeks ago and my landscaper had time to come plant them on a Monday while I was at work. If you are in the market for trees and other stuff, give him a try. G2 Outdoor Living

Update- we have a winner in the latest contest. My mother finally figured out that the Seattle Space Needle and Packy the elephant (Oregon Zoo) were the NW attractions that were established or born the same year I was. Congrats, mom!


  1. I absolutely love birch trees. Beautiful choice!

  2. You'll have to come see them- maybe when they are all yellow!

  3. it makes up for the apple ones you lost in the front neighbor's yard. mp
